If I win the Young Visionaries contest, I would take the time to break down the theories and practice of feminism into digestible pieces for a young audience. I would summarize books like The Feminine Mystique by Betty Friedan and Sexual Politics by Kate Millett for those who don’t have the time or inclination to read them. Feminism has become a dated, negative word but it is a movement that still exists today and is more important than ever with growing rates of domestic violence, sex trafficking, and rape and honor killings. On my blog, genfem.com I try to address feminist issues in the First World, but this grant would also allow me the time to delve more deeply into the feminist literature that will educate and enlighten young readers and set a foundation for the road ahead.
